Flyboy offered the idea to be organised in NOVEMBER 2011 a SECOND ANNUAL Comanche Gold MEETING ONLINE.
It can include ONLINE MULTIPLAYER - MELEE and COOPERATIVE Games, and a Forum about custom maded new Missions, Mods, Manuals and tools for the game.
We can use this topic as a Checkpoint about this idea.
UPDATE FROM 06th of NOVEMBER 2011 NOW THE GAME IS TESTED ONLINE AND FULLY OPERATIONAL AND FROM 06 TO 13 NOVEMBER I WILL BE ONLINE HERE WATCHING THIS TOPIC IN SimHQ FORUM AT 10AM UTC(GMT) TO 12AM UTC(GMT) AND AT 06PM UTC(GMT) TO 08PM UTC(GMT) FOR A TALK ABOUT NEWS AROUND COMANCHE GOLD OR FOR A ONLINE GAMING. THE ONLINE SESSIONS ARE OPEN FOR ALL! UFO :-)
In brief Last year we had:
- Many ONLINE MULTIPLAYER - Headtohead and Cooperative Games,
To play CG online you will need to have Windows 98 or XP and Kali (registered if possible). There is a tool to allow connection on Windows Vista/7 but that requires port forwarding via Windows and on some systems requires you to turn off your router firewall - which I'm sure you wouldn't agree on. Last year we played in Windows XP via Kali, as that has a built-in text chat function and at the time, was the only way to connect (as it emulates IPX). Windows XP via Kali is my recommended and most tested method.
Me or someone may need to get you all up-to-speed before any big events, as there can be hiccups along the way as the multiplayer in CG can be rather picky and is not that robust in terms of connectivity and bandwidth usage.
But please don't let this put any of you off, just understand that it's an old game that isn't done justice by its rather 'sloppy' multiplayer implementation and disregard for Windows 7.
